As primary sources, three-dimensional artifacts represent an opportunity to explore difficult topics with diverse students in the classroom. Participants will work with educators and historians from the NYS Museum and classroom educators to explore ways to implement Visual Thinking Strategies (VTS) when analyzing three-dimensional objects as primary sources to engage all students. Attendees will gain insight into choosing artifacts from their own collections that resonate with curriculum requirements and that address the stories of marginalized and under represented New Yorkers.
MANY is committed to making our virtual programs as accessible as possible. All virtual programs will have ASL interpretation provided by Interpretek.
Virtual programs are made possible by the Robert David Lion Gardiner Foundation.
